|Some kind of Chinese teacher's day today?|
I also noticed the news stories about it being one year since
Greta Thunberg started hitting the news headlines -
How Greta Thunberg Captured Our Attention on Climate
Gillian Ross on 'Buddha at the Gas Pump' and Consciousness Vs Catastrophe?
When that podcast was recorded the Amazon was burning, now Gillian's and my backyards are on fire and it's only just turned spring in Australia.
Queensland's bushfire devastation captured in pictures
Memories Going Up in Smoke?
One of my favourite bushwalking spots that I spent a lot of time in when I was younger has been devastated by fire, which leaves an empty feeling in my heart and a sense of despair for the planet in general.
'A mind of its own': Fire rips through heritage Binna Burra Lodge
An old 'Midnight Oil' song comes to mind when I see those images above, but there might not be anything worth "giving back" soon the way the world is heading.
As soon as I posted this post the latest '42 Minutes' podcast popped up on my Apple podcast playlist and I had a listen while I did some housework.
It seemed to hook in very synchromystically with my post I thought, so maybe I need to get a copy of Richard Powers 'The Overstory'?
|A rating of 4.20?!|
I guess I'll really have to read it now seeing the 'The Overstory' has a 4.20 rating at the Goodreads site;-)
